Anthony Washington, MA, LPC

The struggles that we deal with on a daily basis can be a heavy enough burden to carry, and when we compound these with life transitions, or any other past trauma, it can be completely overwhelming. Stressors at home with family or loved ones, difficulties at school, bullying, truancy, challenges at work, relationship struggles or life transitions, it can all be difficult to navigate. If we go on too long without working through these issues, they can escalate into worse issues. Sometimes we may benefit from seeking help professionally.

I’m here to help. I have a passion for motivating others, personal empowerment, and community improvement. My experiences have afforded me the opportunity to work with many different types of people with many different issues. From bullying and self-harm with youth and adults, past traumas, to relationship discord, grief and loss with adults and children, I will strive to provide a space comfortable enough for us to talk, for myself to listen and learn, and for you to strive forward.

I love getting creative with clients and figuring out the strategies that will work best for you and your child. I earned my M.A. and Psy.D in Clinical Child Psychology at the University of Indianapolis and my B.A. in Psychology at Gannon University. I have experience working with children and adolescents in outpatient clinics, as well as residential and therapeutic school settings. My training includes diagnosing and treating a wide range of mental health issues; including but not limited to ADHD, ODD, Depression, Anxiety, PTSD and trauma related disorders, family disruptions, and substance abuse. However, I also believe that children are more than their diagnosis and work to help all the children I treat live up to their full potential.
